Health an functioning of employees with musculoskeletal or mental stress disorders - analysis of subgroups based on ICD-10 and work ability.
2007 (English)In: International Scientific Conference on Prevention of Work-Related Musculoskeletal Disorders., 2007Conference paper (Refereed)
There is a great need in clinical practise and within the social insurance system in Sweden to learn more about classification of health and functioning and how to understand what influences work ability. This study provides evidence that sub grouping can be done from a medical approach by using ICD-10 or by using the Workability Index, but the pattern of health and functioning differs depending on which tool is used for categorization. Work- ability Index appears to provide a more distinct discrimination in terms of health and functioning than ICD-10.
